Defective Product Cases

When a product doesn’t function as advertised, people can get hurt. Manufacturers and designers have a legal obligation to ensure consumer safety by creating products in such a way that does not create an unnecessary hazard. However, many consumers have experienced illness, injury, and even death as a result of faulty products, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Hernia mesh
  • Children’s products (toys, baby bottles, blankets, etc.)
  • Food and groceries
  • Construction equipment
  • Medical equipment
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Auto parts

What You May Gain in a Product Liability Lawsuit

If you have experienced any serious negative effects as a result of a defective product, you and your product liability attorney will work together to tally up the total monetary damage. You may be able to sue for compensatory damages, meaning that you may be able to recover all direct costs resulting from the faulty product, which may include:

  • Doctor visits
  • Surgery
  • Medications
  • Hospital stays
  • Therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage and repairs

Typically, the plaintiff in a product liability lawsuit is not able to sue the defendant for punitive or non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. However, if you have experienced significant, life-altering bodily damage or the court determines that the manufacturer or designer’s behavior has been particularly reprehensible, you may be able to pursue much greater financial retribution.
